i bought this because i previously owned the DS1SA-1E model, which is superb. In comparison, this feels like something you'd pick up in a 1pound shop. i tried loading a 12kg montitor on this (says it supports up to 13.6), it nearly snapped. the quality is shockingly poor, and unlike the DS1SA-1E, its almost impossible to adjust. I don't know how the same manufacturer could first produce something so awesome, and then something so shockingly poor. I suspect v7 are resellers and they switched suppliers to save a few bob. shame on them.
